Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I think they want you to learn that a rational number (think ratio) can be written as a ratio (fraction). For example 1/11 is rational. if you change that to a decimal (divide 11 into 1) you get 0.090909... which repeats forever with that pattern. some numbers don't have a nice repeating pattern (and cannot be written as a ratio) for example, pi is 3.14159... see http://www.piday.org/million/ there is no pattern. these numbers are irrational

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you generally get irrational numbers when you "take roots" (e.g. square root) though there are exceptions. sqrt(25) = 5 and 5 is rational.
